USA Cycling names World Championships team

Track World Championships, 2007

Majorca, Spain, March 29 - April 1

USA Cycling has announced the team that will represent the United States at the 2007 UCI Track World Championships in Palma de Mallorca March 29-April 1.

The six-member team will feature four women and two men.

Headlining the roster for the women’s squad is defending world champion in the three-kilometer individual pursuit, Sarah Hammer ( Ouch Pro Cycling).  Hammer captured the world title last year in Bordeaux , France – the first for an elite American track rider since 1996 – where her mark of 3:37.227 in the gold-medal final was just fast enough to edge Olga Slyusareva (RUS) for the rainbow jersey.

 This year, Hammer will have her sights set on two events – both the individual pursuit and the points race. In her only international competition of the season, Hammer rode to gold medals in both the pursuit and the points race at the third round of the UCI Track World Cup series in Los Angeles in January. Her pursuit mark of 3:32.058 in the qualifying round was a new American record, personal best and ADT Event Center track record.

Joining Hammer on the women’s squad will be first-time world championship competitor Neva Day (South Bay Wheelmen), Becky Quinn and Jennie Reed.

Reed and Quinn were the only other American women to medal in international competition this season with three medals between them.  Reed won a silver medal in the keirin at the World Cup opener in Sydney last November and a bronze medal in the keirin at the Los Angeles World Cup. Quinn rode to a silver medal in the scratch race in Los Angeles .

In Palma de Mallorca, Quinn will compete in the scratch race while Reed will contest the keirin and the sprint. Day will ride the individual pursuit.

The two-man men’s contingent consists of two endurance athletes – Michael Creed ( Colorado Springs , Colo. /Slipstream-Chipotle) and Brad Huff (Fair Grove, Mo./Slipstream-Chipotle). Creed will compete in the men’s points race, while Huff will contest the scratch race and the newly added omnium competition.
